The best ideas are always the simplest – and this new product is no exception. It promises to revolutionise aspects of the building and construction industry. Tassie Thick Veneer is an eco-friendly THICK veneer of solid timber which, when fixed to a substrate of fire retardant, high insulation polystyrene, will innovate building construction in Australia. Its strength is incredible. So too is its thermal and acoustic capacity. Tassie Thick Veneer can be between 3 – 4mm thick and produced from any Tasmanian renewable timber. And because it’s a thick veneer, it retains the depth and aesthetic qualities of real wood, unlike traditional, wafer-thin veneers. That also makes it easy to maintain and repair by simply sanding back and resurfacing – time and time again! Tassie Thick Veneer is ideal for a wide range of building industry applications from wall dividers and ceiling panels to flooring.
The following chart sets out the physical properties of the polystyrene substrate. Of course, the combination of the Tassie Thick Veneer and the substrate significantly enhances all the listed specifications for the substrate itself.
